Program Chair: Jutta Eckstein

The "Fifth International Conference on eXtreme Programming and Agile
Processes in Software Engineering" is a unique forum for industry and
academic professionals to discuss their needs and ideas for
incorporating eXtreme Programming and agile methodologies into their
professional life under consideration of the human factor.

We will celebrate this year's conference by reflecting on what we have
achieved in the last half decade and also focus on the challenges we
are facing in the near future.

XP 2004 facilitates to swap ideas in a number of ways, including
featured talks by professionals on the cutting edge of eXtreme
Programming and agile processes, technical presentations, activity
sessions, panels, posters, code camps, workshops, tutorials, and other
opportunities to exchange and elaborate on new findings. XP 2004
features additionally a PhD Symposium for PhD students, and an
Educational Symposium for everybody with a vested interest in training
and education.

Conference Topics
-----------------

The conference will stress practical applications and implications of
XP and other agile methodologies (AM). Conference topics include, but
are not limited to:

* Foundations and rationale of XP and AM
* Case studies, experiments and practioner's reports
* XP, AM, and "Lean Management"
* Organizational change
* Other management and organizational issues
* Scalability issues
* Education and training
* Introducing XP and AM into an organization

Recfactor our Writings
----------------------

Getting folks writing papers about useful information is
good. However, a forest of ideas with no organization is bad. We would
like authors and groups of authors come together to refactor older,
related papers into new, consolidated pieces of literature that
communicate comprehensive ideas on an important subject. We need to
encourage ourselves to refactor what we've written in order to produce
excellent new pieces of literature. Please contact Vera Peeters at
(E-Mail Removed) for further information.

Call for Tutorials
------------------
Tutorial Chair: Rachel Davies

The XP2004 tutorial program provides conference participants the
opportunity to gain new insights, knowledge, and skills in topics
related to extreme Programming and Agile software
development. Participants may include software developers, managers,
teachers, researchers, and students.

Tutorials are an independent instruction on a self-contained topic of
relevance to XP and Agile software development. Therefore no
commercial or sales-oriented presentations will be accepted.

We encourage tutorial proposals that provide clear utility to
practitioners, especially innovative tutorials, which depart from
lecture style delivery, and tutorials on highly advanced topics.

Tutorials are presented in half-day (3-hour) or full-day sessions
(6-hour), primarily during the first day of the conference.

Important Dates:

* Tutorial Submissions Deadline: January 11, 2004
* Acceptance notification: February 28, 2004
* Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004

Submission Guidelines for Tutorials
-----------------------------------

A tutorial proposal of up to 2 pages should include:

* Tutorial title and one line summary
* Abstract
* Audience and benefits of attending
* Content outline and process
* Presenter resume with contact information
* History of tutorial
* Examples of supporting material

Submissions must be in English using the Springer LNCS style. All
submissions should be submitted electronically in Postscript or PDF
format to (E-Mail Removed).

Call for Workshops
------------------
Workshop Chair: Vera Peeters

The XP2004 workshop program provides a forum for groups of
participants to exchange opinions and to enhance community knowledge
about research topics and real life applications of Agile Processes.

Workshops also provide the opportunity for representatives of a
technical community to coordinate efforts and to establish collective
plans of action.

We particularly encourage proposals for novel, highly-interactive
workshops that fall outside the conventional workshop format. The
intention is that everybody learns from the experience, the organisers
as well as the participants.

To ensure a sufficiently small group for effective interaction,
workshop organizers manage attendance based on a review of short
position papers from potential attendees.

Workshops are typically half-day (3-hour) or full-day sessions
(6-hour).

This call for participation is for workshop organizers only: a later
call will occur for workshop attendees. Each workshop must have at
least two organizers, preferably from different organizations. The
organizers will typically manage a workshop Web site and the whole
workshop participation process.

Important Dates:

* Submissions Deadline: January 11, 2004
* Acceptance notification February 28, 2004
* Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004

Submission Guidelines for Workshops
------------------------------------

A workshop proposal of up to 2 pages should include:

* Workshop title and one line summary (used in advance program)
* Abstract
* Audience and benefits of attending
* 0utline of the theme and goals of the workshop
* A description of the desired number of participants, the
participant solicitation and selection process
* Presenter resume with contact information

Submissions must be in English using the Springer LNCS style. All
submissions should be submitted electronically in Postscript or PDF
format to (E-Mail Removed).

Acceptance will be based on an evaluation of the workshop's potential
for generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in
the topic, and the organizers' ability to lead a successful
workshop.

Call for Panels and Activities
------------------------------
Panels and Activities Co-Chairs: Steven Fraser and Joshua Kerievsky

XP2004 panels/activity-sessions will be lively, participatory,
educational, and entertaining. They offer an interactive opportunity
to share perspectives, debate opinions, and communicate
best-practices. Panels are not intended as unison gab-fests of
mini-presentations - contrasting opinions are important! Panel formats
have included: traditional; talk show; game show; fish bowl; formal
debate; and special events. A proposal must include a relevant topic,
an appealing format and participants with different points of
view. Part of the enduring appeal of XP2004 panels is to showcase the
opinions of leading researchers and industry leaders. Panelists need
not be experts - dispatches from the trenches can prove as
enlightening as the latest sound bites from the usual suspects. You
don't have to be an XP200N regular to organize a panel.

Important Dates:
* Submissions Deadline: January 11, 2004
* Acceptance notification February 28, 2004
* Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004

Submission Guidelines for Panels and Activities
-----------------------------------------------

Panel proposals must include:

* Title
* Convener/Moderator contact information with bios
* Proposed panelists (names, bios, positions)
* Panel value proposition (value, innovation, timeliness,
controversy factor, appeal, history)
* Format description (traditional panel, debate, fish-bowl, talk
show, game show, special event)
* Complete panel material 'camera-ready' for publication in the
proceedings

Submissions must be in English using the Springer LNCS style. All
submissions should be submitted electronically in Postscript or PDF
format to (E-Mail Removed).

Call for Posters
----------------
Poster Chair Rachel Reinitz

The poster session is an informal and highly interactive environment
that gives XP2004 attendees the opportunity to engage with one another
in discussions about relevant, ongoing work and critical issues in key
areas. Posters are ideal for presenting preliminary research results,
experience reports, late-breaking developments, or for giving an
introduction to interesting, innovative work Posters provide attendees
with a unique opportunity to make their work highly visible during the
conference.

Submissions are sought in all relevant areas of XP and Agile
Methodologies. This is a great forum that spans from sharing real-life
experiences to innovative research. Workshop organizers and/or
attendees may present posters that summarize results from one or more
XP200x workshops, thus making the results immediately and widely
available to the community. Authors of work that is presented in the
XP2004 technical program can obtain even more benefit by presenting
their work in a poster as well, since the poster session provides them
the opportunity to engage in the one-on-one discussions that are not
possible during technical sessions. PhD candidates are particularly
encouraged to submit reports describing their ongoing work, in
addition to attending the PhD symposium.

The Posters program begins with a special session at the Welcome
Reception. Poster authors are required to attend this scheduled
interactive poster session, staying with their poster so that they can
discuss their work with conference attendees. After the Welcome
Reception, the posters will be displayed where XP2004 participants can
view them at their convenience and to enable interactions on the
topics throughout the conference.

Important Dates:

* Submissions Deadline: January 31, 2004
* Acceptance notification March 15, 2004
* Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004

Submission Guidelines:
----------------------

A workshop proposal of up to 2 pages should include:

* Poster title and one line summary
* A short abstract that summarizes the content of the poster
* a two-page extended abstract, suitable for inclusion in the XP2004
Conference Proceedings
* The poster itself, or a preliminary graphic layout of the
poster. The preliminary graphic layout should consist of 1 to 3
pages that sketch the layout for an 8 feet (wide) by 4 feet (high)
bulletin board. Please use 10 point or larger font in the
preliminary layout, and 12 point or larger in the final poster, so
that it is readable.
* References or supporting material
* Presenter resume with contact information

Successful posters are carefully designed to convey technical
details. They should also have a strong visual impact that attracts
the attention of attendees as they stroll past the displays, either
during the interactive poster session or at other times during the
conference. The poster should be self-explanatory, allowing viewers to
examine the information presented without verbal assistance. The goal
is to develop a poster that encourages and facilitates small groups of
individuals interested in a technical area to gather and interact.

The submissions must be in English using the Springer LNCS style. All
submissions should be submitted electronically in Postscript or PDF
format to (E-Mail Removed).

Call for Contributions to the Second Symposium on Extreme Training and
Education a Special Forum for trainers and educators in Extreme
Programming and Agile Processes
----------------------------------------------------------------------

A Special Forum for trainers and educators in Extreme Programming and
Agile Processes

Educational Symposium Co-Chairs: Helen Sharp and Mike Holcombe

This Symposium is for industry and academic professionals who are
interested in teaching and learning extreme programming and agile
processes. Professionals from academia and industry are invited to
discuss their needs and ideas for integrating extreme programming and
agile processes into training plans and courses. The Symposium aims to
share experiences in a variety ways. For example invited talks by
professionals on the leading edge of technology, lively and engaging
discussions, pre-submitted papers and posters. Most importantly, we
want to encourage interaction and debate rather than passive listening
to presentations, and so we'd like to invite you to submit your ideas,
successes, challenges and insights to make the Symposium yours.

We'd like to especially encourage submissions that address issues
concerned with integrating XP and other agile approaches into the
mainstream curriculum in areas such as quality, requirements capture,
HCI, user-centred design and the realities of business.

Important Dates:

* Submissions Deadline: January 11, 2004
* Acceptance notification February 28, 2004
* Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004

Submission Guidelines:
----------------------
Trainers and educators from all levels of industry and academia are
invited to send submissions. There will be two types of submission:
presentation materials such as papers and posters, and active sessions
such as panels and group work. Questions should be directed to Mike
Holcombe or Helen Sharp, the Symposium co-chairs at:
(E-Mail Removed).

Active sessions

Submissions in this category will have a summary printed in the
Symposium notes. Submissions should contain the following information:

* Overview of the topic to be covered
* Type of session proposed, e.g. panel discussion, group work,
goldfish bowl debate, mini workshop, etc.
* Materials and preparation required (if any)
* Process for the session (include timings)

Presentation materials

Submissions in this category will be published in the Symposium
proceeding notes. Selection will be based on clarity, originality,
technical and educational value, and, most important the "synergy
effect", i.e. the possible significance to other trainers and
educators. The review committee will focus on ideas that have the most
value for others at the Symposium. Acceptance of your paper only
guarantees that it will be published in the Symposium proceeding
notes. It does not guarantee that the one-day programme will allow
time to present it. However, all those with accepted papers will have
the opportunity to participate in some way on the day.

There are three categories of presentation materials:

* Experience paper: There is no doubt that all professionals in
training and education face similar challenges in teaching extreme
programming and agile processes. Submissions in this group will
present a challenge encountered in an industry or academic
environment and a description of an innovative idea that was used
to meet that challenge. Everyone has something to contribute in
this category - both negative and positive experiences are most
welcome! We are favoring topics in the area of expertise in other
domains (interdisciplinary teaching and learning); facilitation a
learning organization (educating for change); and active
learning. If you do not wish to submit a paper, please put your
idea on a poster.

* Research paper: Research papers are welcome, which report on
projects contributing to foster the knowledge in the area of
extreme programming and agile processes. Please ensure that your
submission includes how your findings are applicable to teachers
of extreme programming and agile processes.

* Poster / Demonstration: Posters and Demonstrations allow to share
teaching and learning tools and techniques (teaching and learning
software; effective course material and handouts; various stuff
like urls references to books and the like). Furthermore the open
format enables the participants to establish and deepen their
networks with other professionals in the same area. The posters
and demonstrations will be set up similar to an exhibition and
will be open for the whole Extreme Educational Symposium
day. There will be a specific timeframe alloted for circling
around, but every break can also be used for gathering
information. - No official proposal is required, just bring it
along.

Please prepare your experience or research paper according to the
Springer LNCS style. All submissions should be submitted
electronically in Postscript or PDF format to
(E-Mail Removed).

Call for Phd Symposium
----------------------
Phd-Symposium Chair: Jose H. Canos

The PhD symposium will provide a forum for doctoral students doing
research in the area of XP or other agile methodologies. In the
symposium students will present and discuss their research objectives,
methods, and (preliminary) results.

The goal is to provide mutual feedback and guidance from mentors as
well as from other symposium participants. The mentors are senior
university or industry researchers, e.g., current or former members of
the XP200x series program committee. The goal of the symposium is to
expose students to helpful criticism before their thesis
defense. Mentors provide constructive criticism about the current
status of the work, and give advice about possible future direction
and focus.

The PhD Symposium has the same scope as the main XP 2004 conference.

We encourage doctoral students to present their work at the
symposium. Accepted abstracts will be published in the conference
proceedings.

Important Dates:

* Submissions Deadline: March 1, 2004
* Acceptance notification March 15, 2004
* Final manuscripts: March 28, 2004
* PhD Symposium: June 2004 (date TBA)

Submission Guidelines for Phd Symposium
---------------------------------------

Students interested in participating should submit a paper describing
their doctoral work to the symposium chair. Abstracts should:

* identify the research question the work is addressing,
* explain significant problems and current solutions,
* discuss the proposed approach, and
* outline the results achieved so far.

Submissions should not be longer than 1 page and must be in
English using the Springer LNCS style. All submissions should be
submitted electronically in Postscript or PDF format to
(E-Mail Removed).

Call for Social Activities
--------------------------
Social Activity Chair: Nicolai Josuttis


Social events are an important occasion to get in contact with other
people, exchange experiences, and find some new ideas, questions,
solutions, and fellows. We'd like to give you the opportunity to
suggest the way such a social event will be performed. Come with small
and large, cool and hot suggestions (but keep in mind that we have a
limit in costs).
